Skaldic Poetry of the Scandinavian Middle Ages

Note to Anon Sól 77VII

[6] þruma ‘hang’: 2797ˣ’s reading looks like an intelligent guess for a word which most mss had difficulty with; the form is found in 5 other mss and as a correction in a further 3. The readings of 738ˣ, 10575ˣ and a further 15 mss may also derive from þruma, which gives good sense, even if the word is not widely attested with this meaning, as Njörður Njarðvík (1991, 101) points out. Its normal sense is ‘to stand, sit fast, loiter, mope’.
